Four-piece British indie guitar-based pop rock is what's on offer from Interior Motive. The thing that strikes me immediately about this band is the vocal prowess of their singer Sarah Clayton. Powerful, passionate in an '80s rock diva fashion though the music is truly turn of the millennium with its jangly guitars and driving rhythms. "Scream" is definitely the big one here where band and singer let loose. "What A Day" builds from a mellow beginning that lulls the listener into a false sense of security before breaking out into a catchy chorus. "Move In Me" is quiet, emotional and once more allows Sarah to wrap her tonsils around a pleading verse and then go full on for yet another catchy chorus. The band certainly know how lo pen songs with plenty of dynamics and lyrically, there's a vulnerability and honesty as they explore their faith which makes this earcatching. This three-track single is simply a foretaste of their album due out in the next few months and I, for one, can't wait!
